Here are a few resources you can use to help prepare for the storm and/or use to inform others in your community or share on social media:
- National Weather Service (NWS) Forecast offices - https://www.weather.gov/srh/nwsoffices. At the top right of the Cheyenne, North Platte, and Omaha NWS Forecast office pages, you'll find a box with the latest DSS (Decision Support Services) packet and/or briefing with storm updates.
- Ready.gov: Information on winter weather and holiday safety in several languages. There are also toolkits with graphics for social media messaging. https://www.ready.gov/
- National Weather Service: Winter weather infographics - https://www.weather.gov/wrn/winter_hazard_infographics
- Food Safety During Power Outages - from the #UNLFoodSafety Team. https://food.unl.edu/article/what-do-perishable-food-during-power-outage
You are encouraged to use Nebraska Extension ResponseNotes to report any impacts from the winter storm/blizzard (or any other disaster event). This is a quick-capture form that anyone in your offices can fill out, at any time. Go to https://ssp.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7UR8e5VOU2JuJrU.
